Police warn striking teachers not to attack private schools

09 September 2015, 13:09 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Police have warned teachers on strike not to attack those who are in class as well as those teaching in private schools.

Teachers are currently on strike in protest over lack of government support for a 50/60% pay-rise that has been effected by the Supreme Court.

Led by Central Organization of Trade Unions COTU boss Francis Atwoli, the teachers as well as members of other trade unions are set for a rally in Nairobi Wednesday at Uhuru Park, which has been determined as legal by police.

" The rally is legal as long as the teachers do not go overboard," Police Spokesperson Charles Owino said in a press conference Wednesday.

He also urged teachers not to disrupt learning in other institutions going on with their business.

" Teachers should not move on and disrupt learning elsewhere as we have seen in other parts of the country or otherwise they will be arrested and charged," he added.

Teachers in other parts of the country have been involved in violent incidences, with reports of teachers attacking schools ongoing and students being noted.

The Teachers Service Commision TSC has already determined the strike as illegal.
